Product Highlights

Product Description

The P-S500 features two of the world's finest pianos plus an authentic piano touch. P-S500 features piano sounds captured from the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand and the famed Viennese Bösendorfer Imperial grand. These piano samples put two of the world’s finest and most prominent concert grand pianos at your fingertips.

The Yamaha P-S500 provides enormous fun and comprehensive performance capabilities, especially when connecting a smart device, letting you automatically generate piano scores of your favorite songs and use the Stream Lights feature to guide you through your performance.

Authentic piano touch, 88-note weighted GHS keyboard

The Yamaha Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard features a weighted action with heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique and strength for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano.

Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM)

In a grand piano, strings and sounds resonate throughout the entire body of the instrument producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. Not only are the strings you are playing vibrating, but other strings ring as a reaction to ones you play. This is one reason the piano sound is so complex and rich. This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the P-S500 through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard from one instant to the next. As a result, the P-S500 reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in playing an acoustic piano such as which keys are pressed, the strength with which the keys are played and pedal timing.

Intuitive Control With Your Smart Device

Simply connect the instrument to a smart device and use the dedicated Smart Pianist app to access all instrument controls and configuration tools. You can also enjoy powerful features such as app-generated piano scores of your favorite songs that help you learn and play along.

Stream Lights Show You The Way

Red and blue lights above each key show you which notes to play, and when to play them. This extraordinary feature helps you learn how to play, and practice, without ever having learned how to read music, making learning more fun than ever before!

Play your personal favorites or songs from the built-in library

The instrument features 403 built-in songs covering a wide range of genres, from pop songs to classical pieces. You can play the melodies along with the backing of a full band arrangement. The powerful Audio to Score feature automatically creates piano accompaniment scores from your favorite audio songs so you can play along with the original recordings.

The P-S500 combines 88 GHS Weighted keys, CFX and Bosendorfer Piano samples, Stream Lights, Touch Control Panel and Smart Device connectivity into an instrument that is both Classic and Futuristic. While the Hi-tech Touch Control Panel gives you several Voices, Styles, and Lessons, connecting the instrument to Smart Pianist will unlock it's full potential and give you access to hundreds of Voices, Styles, and Lessons. You also gain control over Voice Layers, Splits and Split Points, Reverbs, and MIDI and Audio Recording.
